Looking towards the last week of GourMay 2017 we reminisce on the spectacular dish of the days gone by.
On Thursday last week, we added a delicate seafood flavour to the bill with the Atrium Bar & Restaurant’s Pan Fried Scallops with a contrasting side of rhubarb, pickled ginger and halloumi.
To end the working week, we highlighted a winter warmer from our friends over at the Duxton. The Rotisserie Suckling Pig platter had mouths watering across the capital, complete with lashings of gravy, roast carrots, salsa verde, crushed potatoes and an intricate crackling centrepiece.
To kick-off the weekend, on Saturday we visited the Realm precinct for a spot of High Tea on the Burbury Terrace. Perfectly balanced with elements of sweet and savoury, we raised a glass to the miniature feast with a flute of matched champagne.
To finish the weekend, we visited one of our favourite Manuka hidden gems, Baan Latsamy, with its Chilli Fish – a Lao centrepiece sure to delight on any occasion.
Getting over Monday-itis isn’t easy, but Doubleshot eased us into the working week with the delectable Strawberries and Cream Hotcake topped with a generous serving of fresh strawberries, white chocolate, vanilla cream and macadamias. Delicious!
Tuesday saw People’s Choice winner for Best Restaurant 2016, AKIBA showcasing its succulent Beef Short Ribs with a traditional shot or two of saké to warm the soul.
GourMay Presents: Bicicletta Pizza and Aperol Spritz Class
As we head toward the weekend, we encourage you to have fun with food and immerse yourself in the GourMay 2017 experience. To do so we have enlisted the help of NewActon’s Bicicletta to put together a Pizza and Aperol Spritz Class.
For this event we want you to get a group of friends together to have some fun, eat some pizza, sip on a spritz and meet some like-minded locals!
When you arrive the friendly Bicicletta hosts will divide ticket holders into two groups of 20 – one group will make pizza while the other learns how to pour a spritz, then you switch and have the opportunity to mingle and enjoy your delicious hard work!
